WATCH: Ice-T and Coco Austin Take You on a Tour of Their Cool Condo (Wait Until You See Her Shoe Closet!)

Coco Austin and Ice-T both love their condo in Edgewater, New Jersey, but have very different favorite spaces.

“My favorite room of the house is the laundry room,” Austin, tells PEOPLE as she, along with her husband, gave PEOPLE an exclusive tour of their home. “We have our own huge, red washer and dryer and when he’s downstairs playing an Xbox, usually you’ll find me doing the laundry.”

And Ice-T’s go-to spot? Their bedroom. “I got an 80-inch television [in there],” says the Law and Order: Special Victims Unit star of the red and black decorated space. “When I get home from work I go up to the bedroom, watch all my TV shows, chill out and [our baby, Chanel and our dog] are usually in bed with us too.”

The new mom, who cradled Chanel throughout the video, also shared another interesting feature of the condo. “One of the highlights of this house is this damn fish,” Austin says of a fiberglass marlin sculpture on display in one of the rooms – an inspiration from Ice-T’s first fishing expedition in Florida.

The major wow factor may just be “Coco’s Cave,” which the star affectionately calls her closet. The self-described “leggings freak,” showed off her favorite stretchy pants, racks of colorful clothes, designer duds, and amazing stash of sunglasses.

But the accessory that gets the most love (and has its own closet) are the shoes. Rows and rows of sandals, boots and mostly stilettos (including countless Christian Louboutins) have a special space. Says Austin, “This is my heaven.”

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

While I may not have the same taste as these two I can’t help but love them. They actually seem very down to earth. He’s playing XBox while she’s doing laundry. That could be me and my husband! They seem very happy and comfortable with each other. Plus that baby is ADORABLE!!
